Discussion: Grading the Rule Changes

Our team enjoy the Rock ball as it stays consistent, it flies just as well at 100* as in 75* heat. It is much easier to hit a 44/375 ball out of the park in Reno or Denver at 95* temperature than most other Cities.

Discussion: AAA Home Run Outs

SSUSA got it right. Teams that hit 3+ should be outs. If you can't keep it in the yard switch to a 9 iron. Also, there is never an excuse to hit it up the middle as there are lots of gaps to aim for. Middle shots happen by accident.

Good point on the ball LP. Seen a lot of HR's in Vegas Worlds at 60 AAA with the Rock and at Major in Phoenix during the Winter Worlds this year very few by any of the teams. By the way we like the Rock as it stays consistently good. Even at 100* the ball was as good as at 75*.

Overall, I like the changes and amendments to the rules.

Congratulations go out to Top Gun who won the 60 Major at the Winter Worlds in Phoenix. Very strong team, solid at all positions with a bunch of classy guys playing on that club.

Lots of good posts here and like bkb555's opinion. I also like boston's signature ..."Stay thirsty my friends" :)

IMO garyheifner kind of nailed it in his post above. I pasted his post below and know our team feels the same way.

=========================

5" game Guarantee-simple

1. All the guys get to play.

2. What senior is going to to spend $1200+ for a Vegas package plus food and and x-tras drop 2 and be done on day one of a four day tourney. What, sit around the pool for three more days and then fly home. Two and done would turn Vegas into a west coast tourney. Two and done would kill the smaller qualifers. You go to qualifers to get in "5" games and practice, which according to Gary 19 will make you better and so can win the World Championship.

3. Played a bunch of U-Trip in my day and most of the bigger tournies were teams within driving distance. Drop 2-check out and go home. Vegas is a different story, especially for anyone east of the Mississippi.

This is an interesting topic and I agree with Local, leave the HR rule alone. The 3-HR rule was not a deciding factor in any of the 11-games we played in Vegas or any other tournament this year at 60 AAA.

Thanks to all of you for the kind words.

I think we caught a very good Indiana Legends a little flat in the finals. It was obvious to all of us that they can play a much better game & we were expecting them to explode at any time.

The “ROCK” ball was a pleasure to hit and no doubt helped us. Would love to play with that ball all the time as it stayed hard in 100 degree heat…nice! Playing at BLD on Sunday was a truly fun experience. I love the sound of the ball hitting the green monster.

Some of us are in Mesquite right now where we will mix with players from other parts of the US & Canada to play in the Mesquite Senior Games this weekend and then Monday, will start play in the Huntsman Worlds Senior Games.

My hat’s off to SSUSA for being able to pull off a tournament of this size. I know things got stressful scheduling wise…sorry about stretching things out through the “IF” game but a very good GUSTO team made us do it.

It went without saying that we would play our nemesis from Seattle in the tournament. Thirty eight teams and we still wind up playing Aro Glass Clubbers…LOL

70' pillows are great, it allows for some interesting tactics.

Good luck to all teams in Vegas!

I think there is a big difference between sliding into a base and sliding hard into and through a base trying to take out the defender.
